Wisconsin Aviation Celebrates Four Decades of Service

Published in Midwest Flyer Magazine August/September 2021 online issue

WATERTOWN, WIS  – Wisconsin Aviation, a leader in the general aviation services industry, was founded on 

July 22, 1981, by Owner/President/CEO Jeff Baum – four decades ago! From the beginning, Baum’s mission was to be an organization which customers would want to do business with, and a place where its colleagues would want to work. The company’s focus has always been to deliver the best possible customer service. This was true 40 years ago and still holds true today.

“This year marks a significant milestone in our company’s history, and we would like to thank our customers, partners, employees, and vendors for their trust, loyalty, and support of the Wisconsin Aviation mission and strategy,” said Jeff Baum.

“From three employees in 1981 to 140 today, from piston Senecas to Citation jets, from a 3200-foot runway to Dane County Regional, it’s been quite a journey. The challenges seem to come from more directions, but so do the opportunities. We are proud of where we have come from, but even more excited about where we can go. We will do it by concentrating on providing the best customer service, prudent financial management, and making sure we enjoy the journey along the way.”

The Wisconsin Aviation team consists of over 140 employees, with several serving the company for over 30 years. The corporation has grown from its meager beginnings in 1981 at Watertown Municipal Airport, its corporate headquarters, to Dodge County Airport in Juneau (1983), and then to its flagship operation at Dane County Regional Airport in Madison (1994). The company’s full lineup of general aviation services includes air charter, flight training, aircraft rental, maintenance, avionics, interiors, aircraft sales and management, and ramp services.

Wisconsin Aviation has supported the general aviation industry by being longstanding members of many associations, including the following: Air Charter Safety Foundation, National Air Transportation Association (NATA), National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA), General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA), Wisconsin Airport Management Association (WAMA), Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA), among many others.
